Sunanda was upset over growing proximity between Shashi Tharoor, Mehr Tarar, says witness

Sunanda was upset over growing proximity between Shashi Tharoor, Mehr Tarar, says witness

During the judicial inquest a witness is learnt to have revealed that Tharoor stayed with Tarar in Dubai, sources said.

New Delhi: Congress MP and former Union Minister Shashi Tharoor's deceased wife Sunanda Pushkar was upset with the growing proximity between him and Pakistani journalist Mehr Tarar, a witness has said.

During the judicial inquest the witness is learnt to have revealed that Tharoor stayed with Tarar in Dubai, sources said.

Responding to this revelation Tarar said, "I don't want to make any comment. I am waiting for the police to call me. I am ready to cooperate with police in investigation."

On spending three days with Tharoor in Dubai, the Pakistani journalist said, "I was there at a function and many people were there."

Delhi Police Commissioner BS Bassi told CNN-IBN that the police was investigating the case. "We will share information after two to three days," he said.

There has been a major breakthrough in the case with domestic help Narayan Singh disclosing that Tharoor used to constantly fight with Sunanda for over a year before her death.

In his version of events that happened prior to the Sunanda's death, Singh has revealed, "Tharoor and Sunanda were frequently fighting for a year before her death. And that the name of someone called 'Katy' was frequently mentioned."

He said, "In December 2013, Sunanda hit Shashi Tharoor and he was hurt in the leg. On January 15, 2014, Sunanda started tweeting using Tharoor's phone and copying data from it. That night Sunanda called Tharoor to say he was finished, she had told media everything." Two days before her death, on January 15 Sunanda checked into Hotel Leela Palace instead of going to her home. Even on the night prior to Sunanda's death, Narayan said that the couple was fighting. He said, "On January 16, Tharoor returned to hotel around 12:30 AM and the couple fought till 4:30 AM. I overheard when Sunanda was speaking to someone on the phone around 5 AM."

Next day, Tharoor left the hotel early to attend All India Congress Committee meet. "On January 17, Tharoor called me at 4:30 PM to enquire about Sunanda's health. When I told him she was unwell, he asked me to wake her up, but she did not respond when I tried to wake her up. Tharoor later came and called a doctor who pronounced her dead."

The mysterious death case has made some startling revelations with the Delhi Police confirming that Sunanda died due to poisoning but it is still unclear whether it was taken orally or was injected. The police also said all the relevant will be questioned in the case.

Meanwhile, Tharoor arrived in New Delhi on Sunday but there is still no clarity on when he will be questioned in Pushkar's death probe. The police said they have no plans to grill Tharoor for now.

Tharoor was undergoing treatment for spondylitis at an Ayurvedic clinic in Kerala. Security has also been stepped up at his residence.
